Hello my friend has this power supply
and wants to buy this graphics card

Can this PSU handle a GTX 560ti? His CPU is a PII x4 955.

I'm inclined to say yes, but I don't know much about that particular PSU. However, 600W should be plenty enough for a 560Ti. But to be sure you can always talk to Phaedrus, he seems to be one of the PSU gurus here.

The amps are very low for the 12v rails. I think it'll work for now, but upgrade the psu asap when funds allow it.

That psu is an old design with an anemic 12v line ~34A = 400w (maybe even less), so it could or could not work.
I wouldn't recommend using that combination tbh.

Just noticed that that PSU only has 1x 6+2 pin PCI-e connector and the GTX 560Ti uses 2x 6 pin. You could technically use a molex to PCI-e adapter, but that is hardly ideal and I personally wouldn't recommended doing that. I'd say judging by what others are saying about the amps being low and the lack of 2x 6 pin connectors, that PSU won't work.

The +12v capacity makes it a 400-450w at best... Just by looking at it though, it doesn't look great. I'm not 100% sure what the OEM for that particular one is, though.

An LC6600 isn't a HX520.

Its actually much worse then most 430 watt rated power supplies.and i'll be absolutely shocked if it can even output half its power without blowing up

I'd have to say no, that psu is built on an ancient design, I would upgrade the psu before attempting to run any modern hardware on it.

He has a GTS 250 at the moment and he doesn't have any problems.On the PSU the sticker says 12V1 15A and 12V2 14A.
